        Yes stop trying to force me to confirm that I am an adult, ffs.

        I have had this hotmail account since I can remember, and I do not need to confirm **** to you, and I am certainly not giving you my credit card number.

        Stop trying to snoop on people, and ********, you ignorant and arrogant company.

        Hotmail provide email, nothing more, nothing less, so shut up and zip it.

        Stop asking me for anymore details, because I have not got to give you squat.

        • Define subscribed ics/iCal refresh rate or observe rate specified in feed.

          Refresh rate for subscribed ics/iCals is not formally defined. No setting is exposed. Outlook.com does not state if or which feed provided refresh parameter is respected.

          This should be exposed in the UI or formally communicated in documentation.

          • Please restore switch to toggle out of beta version

            I used to have the "Try the Beta" toggle switch which I must have hit accidentally. Mail view totally changed and I want the old view back. Please restore the toggle switch so I can do this.

            • New feedback from Outlook.com

              Hello, I�m Rodrigo Mariano (rodrigoavila85@hotmail.com) from Brazil !

              My suggestion is show the date of creation account of email. For example, clicking on email address shows how long time they exists.

              Its will improve security because some people create fake emails for apply crimes.

              Thanks for attention!

              Best Regards,

              Rodrigo

                • When activating birthday calendar it should populate existing contacts

                  Hello,
                  Can we just quickly acknowledge the fact that the birthday calendar DOES NOT populdate birthdays for existing outlook contact BUT for existing skype contact.
                  The calendar has exactly 1 task - go through the contact list - get all attributes birthday and add an entry in the calendar for this Firstname and Surname.
                  Does it do this? How can something be so basic and not work with outlook. Google can just laugh at this with their superior contact/calendar management

                  • Improve the spam filter

                    Either give us the ability to turn it off, or at least improve learning from using the 'not junk' feature. Legitimate email is increasingly being incorrectly moved to the junk folder, even though the sender and their domain have been added to the address book or safe sender lists. Every day I must go in and mark about 99% of the 'junk' emails as 'not junk', and then the next day, they are back again. Australia has ONE postal provider, but Outlook treats their email notifications as spam, no matter what I do.

                    • Import Google Calendar

                      All of my educational and work calendars are currently managed using Google Calendar. This is just what all of my current organizations and companies use. I would like to be able to import all of these calendars into Outlook using the iCal format so that I can manage all of my email accounts and calendars in one app.

                      • "Display as" known from Outlook for Desktop

                        I'm missing the "Display as" setting for contacts, known from the Outlook desktop application.

                        With this setting I can set a custom name for each email address of a contact, instead of only one name for the whole contact.

                        (How) is this possible on outlook.com?

                          • Deletion of spam

                            Recently you guys changed the way we can delete spam. Now, when we delete spam it's permanently deleted. I believe we should have the choice whether or not we want to permanently delete spam or just throw it in the trash.

                              • turn off safelinks

                                Please remove the outlook safelinks protection feature. It either blocks or substantially slows loading of links in legitimate emails. It appears the Outlook team is aware of this problem, but only posts generalized responses to postings about the problem. It almost looks as if the Outlook team's responses are bots, not actual responses.

                                  I have an external email address supporting POP/IMAP/SMTP that I'd like to integrate within my overall outlook.com account. My issue is that outlook.com sends emails "on behalf of" my primary alias, whatever I try.

                                  I have read numerous threads have tried the following to solve my own issue:

                                  - creating a connected account via POP/SMTP: same issue

                                  - creating a connected account via just SMTP (outgoing only): same issue

                                  - deleting/re-adding the above

                                  - adding the account as a sign-in alias also, and trying the first three above

                                      Remove HARD folders: ARCHIVE and CONVERSATION HISTORY.
                                      Those are folders MICROSOFT thinks I need; but it's just clutter in my folders list and less customization

                                        I really don't want a new Outlook. Someone like me, who still has a Hotmail address, really doesn't want updates. Why can't you just leave things the way they are? They work *fine*. In fact, if I had my way, I'd go back to the Hotmail that I had back in the early 2000s, when I could set things up the way I wanted more easily. If you want to offer new to folks, fine. But let us be the ones to make that choice.

                                        Thanks--
